TORONTO - A Jewish hockey player is suing the Anaheim Ducks, claiming coaches with the team's former ECHL affiliate made several anti-Semitic remarks to him during his stint there, according to several media reports.

Jason Bailey filed a suit Tuesday in Orange County, Calif., against the Ducks, the ECHL's Bakersfield Condors and coaches Martin Raymond and Mark Pederson. Reports state that Bailey is seeking unspecified damages for harassment based on his faith.

Bailey, 23, was drafted by the Ducks in the third round of the 2005 draft and spent the 2008-2009 season in Bakersfield. The Ottawa native was then traded to the Senators.

The reports state that both the Ducks and the Senators declined to comment.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.
